Little Owl hide
LITTLE OWL HIDE ….2022 Update
*** January 22 ***
***The Hide is closed at the moment as the Owls are very much nocturnal at this time of year ***
Shortly we will be refurbishing and extending the hide so that we can comfortably seat 3 photographers for the coming Season, more details will follow.
The cost of each session is £75 per person …. the hide is for two Photographers, with plenty of room for your bags and kit etc.
During the breeding season Morning sessions generally run 6-9am and evenings 6-9pm but these will vary as the season progresses, out of the breeding season evening sessions can be arranged to suit.
The hide is located on a working dairy farm in the welsh countryside close to the village of Rossett, which lies between Chester and Wrexham, minutes off the A483. As the hide is on a working farm there are restrictions in place for your safety and to not cause any disturbance to the farm operation. The meeting point will be in the village of Rossett, where you can then follow me down to the Farm, about a 5 minute drive.
The hide is a few minutes walk from the farm yard, this is across a field that may have dairy cows in. Then it’s over a stile and a short walk into the hide. I will accompany you in the hide for the duration of your stay. It can get quite wet and muddy, so it is recommended you wear boots or wellington boots.
The perches for the Owls are very close to the hide, a focal length of 500mm will give you a nice tight image of the Owl, whereas a lens such as a 300mm or a zoom will give you opportunities to photograph the birds in flight or landing etc.
T&C’s….. as stated this is a working farm, I have no control on what may happen on a daily basis, it is unlikely to disturb the birds as they have been nesting here for many years and are used to farm machinery, cows etc, but if they are disturbed this is out of my control. Should the Owls not show at all and you leave with no images, I will offer you a free return to the hide on a convenient date to us both.
There are no facilities in the hide, so you will need to bring any food or drink you will need, and there are no toilets, so please bear this in mind.
